The trip to Norway was amazing, lot´s of inspiring and wonderful ice climbing lines great alpine climbing and a good climbing ethic. The people are very hospitably and they say things straight out, what makes it very uncomplicated.
We have been in the Lyngen Alps for iceclimbing and shooting aurora borealis. So the days where quiet long, but I like the feeling of a harsh nature and the cold with the big sleeping bag in view ;).
We where a nice team with Hanno Schluge, Ray Demsky, Heli Putz, Thomas Schermer and Cameron Sylvester whose kept the spirits high even in darker times.
Hanno Schluge and me managed to realise a cool first ascent as the locals confirmed. The 6 pitches long route is called Stuorraniibi (Sami Knife) and we rated it WI6, M7. The protection is clean. What I really like on this climb is that we didn´t left any traces from our ascent. The rock is sometimes loose but with some alpine experience you can enjoy the climb. A king line.
So now the photo project is online with unique pictures and a short clip of the trip.
